Expert Advice - Choosing a Carpet Style

Jim Aaron, our VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, shares some information on the different carpet styles that are available.

Carpet Types

Although there are a variety of carpet choices you can consider, we help make the process easier for you. In most residential settings, berber carpet is popular because it does well to combine style and performance. If you need extra durability, be sure to check out frieze carpet, but if you want premium softness and luxury, shag carpet is a great option.

There are also carpet types that offer incredible stain resistance. A stain resistant carpet can stand up to most everyday messes, and are made to handle frequent traffic. There are also special types of carpets that are waterproof. A waterproof carpet is great for families who have multiple pets or children, and are ideal for finished basements.

If you need carpet for a small area (such as a closet or hallway) be sure to ask us about carpet remnants. Carpet remnants are small pieces of quality carpets than be purchased and installed in the same day.

There are five main types: level loop, patterned, textured, frieze, and plush.

Where can Carpet be Installed?

Carpets that feature stain, wear and fade resistance are ideal for households with active families. Why buy a carpet that you constantly need to look after when we have carpets that are perfect for your lifestyle. Carpets are more durable than you think and can handle places around your home with heavy traffic like hallways, stairs, and even living rooms. Carpet is ideal for spaces that you want to make warm and inviting like bedrooms and children’s playrooms or even an office.

Places to avoid installing carpet include rooms with a lot of moisture such as bathrooms and kitchens. Most carpets absorb moisture which creates an ideal environment for harmful allergens. Even with waterproof carpet options, always avoid these areas if at all possible.
